About Jim and Patty Parker
We have dreamed of owning our own home on the west coast and have been visiting the Homosassa area for over 30 years. We love the area and the atmosphere and plan to make it our full time home in the future.
Jim and Patty Parker purchased this House in 2018
Why Jim and Patty Parker chose Homosassa
This property met both needs for us - a perfect spot for vacationers and a perfect future home for us! This property was well cared for by the previous owners for the last 20 years and it checked all of the boxes for our home search.
What makes this House unique
Close to the river for quick access by boat, kayak, paddle board or whatever gets you in the water, yet set back far enough to get away from the crowds. Our home has a commercial ice machine and kayaks available for our guests.
Minimum age of primary renter:18
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
We took a quick trip to Florida to swim with the manatees. This house was very clean and centrally located. Jim and Patty were excellent hosts and were very attentive. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful, well maintained and provisioned home. Fantastic location; responsive and helpful owners. The availability of kayaks a real plus, plus the proximity to the springs. It exceeded expectations and we hope to return!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. This is the perfect time of year to see lots of manatees. Hope you'll come again!

Beautiful, well-equipped home in Manatee Central!
We are two retired couples who just completed a week-long stay here. It was absolutely wonderful! Jim and Patty have thought of everything...whenever we wanted or needed something, we were always able to find it. The weather had been a bit cooler than normal prior to our visit, and continued so throughout our visit, which brought the manatees in from the Gulf. They were everywhere! When my brother and his wife arrived, a bit ahead of us, they were greeted by a pair of manatees in the canal behind the house. The kayaks were wonderful, and getting into them off of the dock out back was about as easy as it gets. We spent a lot of time just paddling around, fishing and watching the wildlife. My brother brought his aging spaniel and the property is perfectly set up for canine guests. We certainly hope to be back again!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts. We certainly hope you'll be back again, too!

Doesn't get any better
We have rented this house twice now because it has everything you could possibly want. Its big, clean, perfect location right on the river and they have plenty of kayaks. You can paddle to the springs in 10 minutes. It's also an easy drive to publix and restaurants. Jim and Patty are super nice and seem to truly care about your stay. Each time we have visited, we are greeted with some goodies they have left for us. This will be our Homosassa destination for all future visits!
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed both of your stays and hope you will come back soon.

Great House, Great Space, Great Amenities
Our family loved our last minute New Years vacation to Florida and this vacation rental played a big part in that. The house offers great space inside and out. We loved having access to kayaks and found manatees each time we took a trip out. We rental vacation homes with our family several times each year and this one was a favorite among many in the family. It always helps that the fish cooperate - dropping a line in right off the deck was successful each time. The owners were responsive before and during the visit. They have done a very nice job setting up the home with the basics needed - plenty of kitchen supplies, towels and bedding. All in all we hope to be back again soon.
We are so glad you enjoyed our home and wish you and your family a Happy New Year. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts. We hope you will come back and stay with us soon!

Could have only been better had a cook been included in rental agreement.
No disappointments! Very close to the Springs and Manatee, which was our purpose in making the trip. Grandchildren swam and Manatee came to them by the boat. Good time was had by all, including the Manatee!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and got to see the manatee. Hope you'll visit us again. Thank you for your kind words.

House is near the springs which are home to the manatees in the cooler months. Watch them from the dock or use the kayaks to paddle out to the river for an up-close experience.
